World Book Night is April 23. What is World Book Night, you ask?
World Book Night is an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books. To be held in the U.S. as well as the U.K. and Ireland on April 23, 2012. It will see tens of thousands of people go out into their communities to spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free World Book Night paperbacks.
World Book Night, through social media and traditional publicity, will also promote the value of reading, of printed books, and of bookstores and libraries to everyone year-round.
To get involved, all you have to do is go to a coffee shop or hospital, church or community center, an after-work party or train home, shopping mall or local school — and give out 20 free paperbacks.
These paperbacks will be specially-produced, not-for-resale World Book Night U.S. editions, and there will be 30 titles for you to choose from.
But you need to sign up by February 1.
